Morning by Morning, August 12 - "Desired Haven" of Peace
Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are the King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:16). Rule and reign over every dimension of my life today. Under the sovereignty of Your kingship and the authority of Your lordship, I have nothing to fear in all that I may face. And the best of all is that You are with me through it all. So I begin my day speaking out Your name and listening for Your voice. ...
"Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to the desired haven. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!" (Psalm 107:28-31 NKJV)
As a close friend of mine continues to present his case in the trial of his life, he's crying out to You. As each distortion is clarified and every misrepresentation is confronted, You are exposing the lies and revealing the truth to establish his innocence, while he cries out to You. His desired haven in the storm at hand is the restoration of the honor of his name. And the heaven he'll find will be in the peace and joy he'll know in his soul when You calm this storm and still these waves to bring him out of this distress.
One day soon, we'll all join with him and all his family and friends to give thanks to You for all Your goodness and wonderful works. That's my prayer for him and proclamation over him, as Your Spirit continues to stir in our hearts to persevere in prayer until all is done and he is home in that desired haven of peace. You are our Haven of Peace (Isaiah 9:6; John 14:27). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
I rejoice with you and thank the Lord our God for bringing you through every storm into His haven of peace for you, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
Friends, please continue to join with me in prayer for a close friend of mine and his family, as he continues to go through his trial this week. He'll likely be calling his last witnesses today, with the judge giving the case to the jury to decide their verdict early next week. Please continue to join with me to press through in prayer until the end for him and his family. By the grace of God, this trial seems to be going exceptionally well, with more truth being revealed every day. We pray for clarity, discernment, that all things be exposed in the light of the truth, that the judge and jury may discern and judge rightly, as well as for the favor and mercy of the Lord for my friend and his family. And may God cause all of this to work together for good. We trust that the battle is won in the Spirit, as we pray for it to be manifested on earth as it is in heaven. God bless you!
